EPDM Roof Systems - Commercial Roofing

Ethyline Propolyne Diene Terpolymer (EPDM) is a dimensionally stable membrane that can withstand and resist almost any type of nature-born stress. This single-ply roof membrane, also commonly referred to as a rubber roof system, utilizes carbon black as its the molecular "backbone" which enables it to take on characteristics such as the ability to expand up to 300% yet retain 100% structural memory. EPDM also has excellent weathering resistance and serves as a superb second generation (roof-over) application.

EPDM roof systems are typically installed in one of three methods:

  • Mechanically attached - This application provides a lightweight, cost-effective solution whereby the roof membrane is affixed to the structural deck utilizing mechanical anchors.
  • Fully adhered - The system is applied by bonding the membrane directly to the affixed insulation board or other roofing membrane substrate.
  • Ballasted - Using large sheets and 10 to 12 pounds of rock ballast to hold the membrane in place, this roof system can be the most cost-effective due to the ease and speed of installation. However, this application does require a structural engineer's approval.
